Thawing thoughts and words...

I can hardly believe that it has been so long since I have ventured fingers to keyboard.  But much like my world, my words have been frozen deep within the crazy of life.

So, I am hoping that much like this picture, the thaw will begin and unearth some treasures within.

 I pray that this weekend's wanderings will include some rest and writing. Soon, I hope the sprouts of thoughts and words will find themselves here!

My weekend continues...

At times in these past few days it was difficult to tell where the heavens stopped and the earth began.

As quickly as the flakes fell to earth they gathered in numbers upon their terrestrial bed. Quickly and almost completely, the line blurred between the two.

Beautiful from the inside but wearying from the outside. We waited, we watched and then we shoveled.

My front steps after round 2 of shoveling:

My front steps 4-5 hours after round 2 of shoveling and waiting for round 3

Thank goodness for fancy electric shovels!  (especially for round 3 shoveling of the driveway)  Rounds 1 and 2 wreaked havoc on the conventional shovel.  We had to bid a painful goodbye to that old friend.

Yes, that is snow...up to his waist!

Great exercise for the Maggie!

Sammy loves it, too!

Now, this is where you will find me...

Keeping warm in the Blizzard of 2010!

Ahead for my weekend...

The air is heavy with expectation and soon, very soon, will give birth to the much anticipated…snowflake.

This winter has been full of these moments. Too full some would say.

Nonetheless, I find myself once again in a pregnant pause before the storm. The supplies have been purchased. The camera is charging. I wait in grateful anticipation for the forced interruption to life.

What is ahead for your weekend?
